Oct. 27, 2021: Good morning Roatan! If you keep up with the local weather stations on Wunderground, you will notice a new addition in Sandy Bay. Many thanks to Dave and the great folks at SOL for putting up a new weather station, which will be a great educational opportunity for the kids there.
Our weather will continue to be pretty boring today, with winds 15-20 mph and seas around 3 feet (1 meter) and clear skies. Winds get calmer tomorrow as our front approaches. Winds will be 5-12 mph and seas around 2 feet (.6 meter) and a small chance of rain, especially at night.

Friday we’ll see our winds turn around from the west at 10-15 mph and increasing chances of rain as the day goes along.

Friday night into Saturday morning will be our best chance of rain, and winds will switch to the north/northwest at 10-15 mph. Exactly how much rain depends on where our cold front stalls out.

This European model suggests the front will move to our south, giving us Sunday and Monday with comfortable temperature and dewpoints with no rain. The U.S. GFS model suggests that only Sunday morning will be cool and that the front will rebound and keep us wet Sunday into Monday. It’s hard to tell right now, but we’ll definitely enjoy some cooler conditions this weekend.
